, this diary and everything else, the initial reaction when romney said what is true is that administration was sympathizing with the people out there murdering our ambassador by blaming it on this you tube video about mohammed, was that romney had facts wrong and that is sympathetic statement went out from the cairo embassy. what were they responding to? and if there is information responding to why weren't the embassies fortified?. >> this isn't about america, but american flags ripped out and burned. and chanting death to america, it kind of is a good indication it might be about america and that president apologizing for quote, torture and going to close gitmo didn't pan out. i have a question and that is the handling of rise of radical islamists. >> and there is the september 11th truther associates with hamas. >> you've been right all this time. and the president has been wrong. >> watch this ad. i want to get your reaction to this. >> there is a rally for the new egyptian president. >> they want to conquer israel and renew long-severed tie was iran, a country building nuclear weapons
, everything else, the initial reaction when romney said, which was absolutely true, that the administration was sympathizing with the people out there murdering our ambassador by blaming on this youtube video about muhammad was that romney had his facts wrong, and that sympathetic statement went out from the cairo embassy before the violence started. then, what were they responding to? they must have been responding to something. >> sean: yeah. >> if they had information they were responding to, this little trailer on youtube, why weren't the embassies fortified? >> sean: by the way, jay carney, this isn't about america, but americans flagged ripped down and burned, al-qaeda flags raised, chanting "death to america." it's a good indication that it might be about america, and that the president apologizing for "torture" and he's going to close gitmo didn't exactly pan out. i have one more president about this. that is the president's entire handling of the rises of radical islamists. >> big problem. >> we've got muhamma mohamed mo, associates with terrorists. >> you've been right all along,
that he did not think that mitt romney would use the line that we've all been discussing so much, and that kathleen mentioned in the survey, the claim that obama has gutted welfare reform and has, i'm sure you've seen that ad, that all three of us, all four of us i think have debunked. so i want to play a little short video as an example of, about this and talk a little bit about why i do think we will hear. here we go. >> so this is a video from -- >> i will be the first to publicly say i was wrong, ms. coppola. because my objective is for people to know the facts and the truth on all of the stuff. >> you know what you should do? let me tell you what you should do. you should go on some kind of a truth tour.

romney, how is he doing? >> he's got to become more aggressive, become clear, and stick to issues in a firm way. they've allowed the national media to define this campaign for 2 1/2 weeks, and that is an enormous disadvantage if you're a republican. i mean, republicans in the general election have to wake up every morning and say, okay, the obama team includes virtually every reporter i'm going to meet. and you've got to campaign in that context. so you've got to be so clear and so consistent that you reach beyond them. if you don't do that, you'll stay in permanent trouble. >> bill: many people look at debate as being probably the linchpin for this race. do you agree? >> yes. i think in the first debate -- my newsletter at human events coming out tomorrow will walk through this. i think at the first debate, romney has to come across as capable of being president, as a legitimate alternative to obama, and as somebody who's not afraid to say what he really believes, even face-to-face with the president. >> greta: all right. today it was reported that senator harry reid went after h
a trillion dollars. not so. it's all postponed to 2013. governor romney has said we're going to do things with the tax cold, cut everyone's taxes and get more money. not clear how that's going to happen. i hope in the coming debates the people who are the moderators, who are very smart and policy savvy won't let them just give an answer and -- you have to follow up and say, now wait a minute, that doesn't square. how are you going to do this? what is the expectation the public can have? i mean, this is most interesting. if you think about who is going to become president. they are going to have to do some really unpopular things. >> sean: very much so. >> to fix this. i mean, you look through the book, and it was john boehner the speaker who came to the president and said we need to do tax reform, entitlement reform. those are hard. they take a long time. >> sean: we need it. >> it's just got to be done. >> sean: i accept means testing. i don't like it, but i accept it. i accept they'll raise the eligibility age. these are basic things. mitt romney to his credit said that on "60 minutes"
four years. >> harry reid is targeting mitt romney's mormon faith. that's fine. let's talk about the president's faith. >> no, no, no. not bless america, damn america. >> sean: all of that, and the president is not reading off the teleprompter. >> we don't have all the information yet. >> sean: and the ad the main street media don't want you to see. we're 40 days from election day. "hannity" starts right here right now. if you want a glimpse into what the future holds for america if president barack obama is handed a second term, take a hard long look at the chaos unfolding in the group in europe. violent riots are raging in the streets of spain and greece as angry mobs protest against the government and austerity measures there. in athens, more than 70,000 people descended on the greek parliament. molotov cocktails targeted police officers, and similar scenes of violence in madrid as well, but make no mistake if this president is in fact afforded another four years in office and has the ability to run up our national debt another $6 trillion, look right there, this is what main
states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this after one of the most tumultuous starts to any starting professional sports season we've seen in rec
attacks against our ambassador and three americans. bill: governor mitt romney now talking taxes laying out the specifics of his tax plan last night on "60 minutes". the republican nominee said he will cut rates for everyone but that doesn't necessarily mean your bill will drop. listen. >> all the rates come down but lest people think there will be huge reduction in the taxes we owe that is not the case. we'll limit deductions and exemptions particularly for people at the high end because i want to keep the current progressivety from the code. there is no tax reduction for high income people. i would like to get a tax deduction for middle mcfamilies by eliminating the tax on middle income families on capital gains. bill: there is lot spoken on the 30 second sound bite. stuart good morning to you. >> good morning bill. bill: size up what he said than he have two specifics. >> you can't reduce this to a simple one-liner. this is not herman cain's 9-9-9. there is no easy way to reduce what governor romney has to say about taxes and tax reform into an easy one-liner. here is what you can sa
governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up in lincoln. my husband and i have been married for 40 years. agriculture is important to the state. what is important is that we always work together as a state. is urban and rural interests, and because of agriculture, it is important to the state of nebraska a. one entry jobs is dependent on the agriculture economy. people across nebraska realize and understand that. we need to keep in mind, a balancing act. we have done that in nebraska and we have done that in the last a years in the legislature. that is how we grow our e
of character, and out. -- character, no. what surprised me in terms of mitt romney is that there are a lot of a genuine interesting stories that you heard about the convention, the people he has helped. but there were a lot that did not get cold. the ones that were told were very serious and heartbreaking. there were a lot of stories about decency, him as a person. they are very interesting. there are decisions on an ongoing basis not to share them in a public way. >> several olympics ago, i was going to cover the event, and he happened to be there in their role of his head of the olympic games. i had never met him before, so we just had a conversation. when i said to him, more than four years ago, there is a lot of talk about your running for president and the person that answer that question was a completely different person than the person that talked about his sudden. -- his son. it is a very interesting dynamic and in a way, sometimes, i found politicians to be the opposite of that. there are politicians, so they are very out there when they are talking about something that is going t
if you look at what they have said on this issue, both obama and romney's plans are vague. if i were moderating the debate that is coming october 3rd, i would spend about half of it asking them what would you do specifically. give us the diagnosis of the plan -- [applause] and tell us what you're really going to do. and part of that question is there has to be a willingness to compromise, and there has to be an innate willingness to do things that are painful for your side. i'm going to stop there, and we'll do questions. one more story. remember years ago the head of simon & schuster after i had published one of my books took me to dinner in new york city at one of these restaurants where you would never want to go where you have to pay. [laughter] and he said what's your next book going to be about in and i said, oh, well, i haven't decided. i'm going to do some thinking, some reading, some research. and he looked at me and said, what? i said, yeah, i want to do thinking, reading, reporting, weighing the alternatives, and he said why are you going to waste your time? [laughter] i s
ask americans barack obama or mitt romney, barack obama wins every time. why do you think that is? >> host: they get a pretty big debt between the two candidates. >> guest: i was shocked by the public opinion polls currently in the 11-point at a vigil for the foreign policy with barack obama and i can't see why. the only thing they talked about was killing them live in. >> host: that is what most people remember but i also think that obama has been actually on the same page in terms of the foreign policy leading from behind and americans are tired in terms of the foreign policy. that is and what a leader does decide. we have a crisis in the euro that could bring down the u.s. economy. we have a joblessness crisis. there are a lot of causes the president could pick the would resonate with the public and champion them instead of taking the obscure dates from the progress of wish list like the health care reform. >> host: we only have a few minutes left. tell us about your biggest conclusions and what you might do next. >> guest: well, you write a book to have a good question for a y
